Introduction To Sailing Program

Every year in the fall, the Luffing Lassies host a two week-long Introduction to Sailing (ITS) Program.  The goal is to teach women how to skipper a Sunfish so they can join the Lassies for Thursday races throughout the school year.  The ITS program is geared to first time sailors or those who wish to brush up on their Sunfish skills.  It is the first step to becoming a Luffing Lassie and joining a great group of women who love to sail.
